Bangkok's Grand Palace Tour with or without Hotel Pick up

4 reviews
Make the most out of your tour to Bangkok's Grand Palace by traveling with a guide, who will provide in-depth information on its history and architecture. You'll have plenty of time to ask questions as you explore; you'll also visit the must-see Wat Phra Kaew, the most sacred Buddhist temple in Thailand. Choose whether you'd like to add Bangkok hotel pickup and drop-off, which makes this a flexible option.

This is quite a place and the centrepiece is in fact the huge white statue of the Goddess of Mercy. There is a lift to the top and fine views of the city from the diadem in the head of the Goddess. Don't miss the many pure white sculptures inside the head either - their quality is excellent. Lift charge is 20 THB for Thais; 40 for foreigners but my pink Thai ID card got me in at the local price! A free shuttle bus will take you there from the car park.

This is a Buddhist religious site with a big white stature of Guan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy. It is situated north across the Kok River about 8.2 km from centre of town. There are three main buildings in the compound- the large white Quan Yin temple, a 9-tier pagoda and a white coloured temple. You can reach the Quan Yin temple base by walking up the stairs, which are guarded by white dragons. There are quite a number of steps to walk up, therefore it’s advisable for those with walking difficulties, to take the free transport provides from the parking area. Once you reach the base of the Quan Yin statue, you can go up to the 26th floor by an elevator after buying a ticket for 40 Baht. This payment is for the use of the elevator/Lift. Entrance to the temples here is however free. Once you reach the top, you will be greeted by mesmerising glittering white sculptured work of art over the walls mainly depicting Quan Yin. You can have a good view from the top of the nearby surroundings. The steps leading to the 9-tier pagoda are far less in number, than that at the Quan Yin temple, and is guarded by golden and green dragons. In this building, you can climb up the floors, one by one, while viewing the deities displayed at each of these floors. The other building here is a beautiful white coloured temple, with stairs again lined by amazing row of serpents. This building is stunningly beautiful and the background Buddhist chanting, in this temple, was mesmerizing. There are toilets which are clean and well kept. The surrounding area is beautiful and well maintained. Allow at least 2 hours to enjoy the sights and photography here. The place is bound to be hot weather, therefore carry a hat, sun lotion and lots of water. Best to have your own transport or have somebody wait for you. I would rate this temple as a must visit in Chiang Rai, along with the White Temple and the Blue Temple. The Baan Dam museum is about 12 km away and the blue temple in 6.2 km.

Amazing to see the height of the Buddha, 26 stories high. Can go up in a lift to look out through Buddha's eye. Great view, and great intricate carvings throughout. Also a beautiful white temple and a Pagoda to visit as well. At the time free admission, and free shuttle bus to the Buddha, or you can walk up the stairs.

Seems beautiful but it is mostly a cheap recent construction. Not worth a visit unless maybe if you are Chinese as it is a Chinese temple.
